, the president wants to do tax reform. republicans are over the tax fight. they figure they've done taxes. they're not going to do that, and that's a part of the president's calculation. if he can't get that, what does he do on the spending side? not much. >> thanks very much to all of you. that's interesting. it does seem to many that tax debate is sort of done, republican or democrat. >> right. >> we had that fight, here we are. >> but the one thing the president does get is to choose what the country focuses on. he doesn't necessarily get to choose the results. he gets to choose what the country focuses on so we'll see. this is a big test for him to pick his priorities. >> that's why tomorrow becomes crucial. we'll learn a lot tomorrow. >> coming up, a rare look at a room inside the nation's capitol, a room that only a few people have ever seen. wow. would you take it? well, there is.

is the republicans have agreed to raise taxes. they refused to do that for a generation. i think there will be a change on immigration. i think there's potential for bipartisan work on energy. the republican party's got to find its way back to some kind of restoration if it wants to get the white house back if it wants to control the senate again and move beyond the house. the movement they've had on the debt ceiling, democrats would call it gimmicky on some level. but we want to choose our fight difficultly. they want to push the president to deal with the spending problem this government has. you know what? all the polling reflects the fact that they're right. americans want a better economy. they want compromise. they want to cut government spending. so republicans are on the right track there. the question is how do they find a way to pressure the president in a way that's different tanhan what they've done. >> eugene? >> i think the question is whether the republican establishment, such as it is can bring along the rest of the republican party, the tea p
that could stimulate the economy. the economy and corporate tax reform. corporations, their outreach to business leaders. business leaders are begging for corporate tax reform. to have tax reform being part of a debt deal, all of these things will help get the economy on course faster than it is now. >> listen, it seems to me this is the absolute crux, isn't it? this sort of paralysis we've seen in washington, the very silly behavior that many would see, as we've witnessed in the last two years. this has to come to an end. i'm quite disturbed really, when margaret says john boehner is not going to get in a room and get stuff done. that's what gingrich and clinton did. they fwoet told me that. they learned the hard way when government came to a grinding halt. and that's when they got in a room together. i would like to see the speaker and the president get in a room. i think they've been equally to blame in many ways for this impasse between them in the last four years. i don't want to see them do it the official way. you have a democratic senate, a republican congress, i don't see ho
. people forget reagan was able to get tax reform, bill clinton was able to get a balanced budget. certainly a big opportunity for the president but fully aware in the white house, a lot of challenges ahead as well, jenna. >> certainly not challenges for a father. nice to see the first family, ed, and how much the girls have grown up over the last four years. what we're looking at for the president tomorrow besides the hair styles and what everybody is wearing at the inauguration is what is he going to say? what will be the address to the nation tomorrow? you mentioned some policy challenges ahead. what are you hearing about tomorrow's address and how that might set the table, if you will, for the years to come? >> true. what i'm hearing is the state of the union address next month is really where the president will go with a deeper dive on policy, whether it be gun control, immigration reform, the debt ceiling debate. tomorrow's broad scene. his senior advisor will talk about bringing the country together. republicans are saying the early signals they've seen from the president a
demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but it's just elitist hypocrite when this comes it a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> sean: powerful ad, but yet, anything the n.r.a. points out seems to just come under attack. >> well, i mean, it's come to the point in this country at that hypocrisy is right out there in the open. i mean, the fact is, all of these are backing hee and political people when their kids go to school, by and large protected by police and armed security. i mean, what's unfair is there are moms and dads all over this country, getting up and sending their kids to school on monday and tuesday next week that are praying that their kids come whom safe. and we could immediately help protect those kids by putting armed security in schools, same armed security that the elite has. it's the same with self-defense. these celebrities in hollywood, the rich, the powerful, the politicians are all protected, body guards, security, all the magazines they want. i mean, since when does the idea of protection limited to a
demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be surrounded by children who wrote letters to him begging for gun control. >> reporter: that's right. you know, we see the white house do this in the past, usually it's around a fiscal fight where the president's putting pressure on congress he'll be surrounded by families from across the country. well, in fact, the president, as you pointed out, will be surrounded by these young kids who wrote letters to the president in the wake of the connecticut shootings. in addition to that, though, a white house official confirming that the president will also be joined with some newtown families, families impacted by the newtown shootings at this event here today. so, clearly this is an effort by the white house to put pressure on lawma
. without unity and republicans are divided in house they stand no chance of blocking any tax increases that democrats are so intent on. jenna: we'll watch in the weeks to come, doug, thank you. >> reporter: okay. jon: new troubles for boeing's airliners. troubles grounding all the 787s in japan's after one of the jets was forced to make a emergency landing today. dan springer is in seattle with the details on what happened. none of these planes have crashed, no serious injuries but still a big problem for boeing, huh? >> reporter: that's right. for more perspective, jon, worldwide there are six 787s flying. four of them left to the u.s. or coming to the u.s.. this is not a worldwide panic. this latest incident happened in western japan during a flight on all nippon airways. a warning light came on. a the pilot smelled smoke. it caused a landing early landing but they confirmed there was no fire but a smoke coming from a lithium-ion battery that sits behind the cockpit. looks like another electrical problem for the 787 but not the same battery that caught fire after landing in boston. t
to tax and spend to the congress, and the congress alone. our current deficit is the result of money congress has already borrowed. president obama explained to the american people today how republicans in congress are trying to avoid doing their actual jobs. >> these are bills that have already been racked up. and we need to pay them. so while i'm willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> if the american people do not catch on to the severity of all of this, of defaulting on our debts, the country will be in a dire situation. president obama knows this. he believes it. he has proved it before. and he is not going to play games with economic stability. >> so we've got to pay our bills. and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not c
taxes, but there are a lot of people who are lower down the food chain, the economic chain, who are also paying lots of taxes relative to their income, and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change. there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting, and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. >> chris, what's sad to me about that is that by virtue of mentioning the phrase climate change, it's almost like colin powell has kicked himself out of the republican party. this party used to play ball on that issue. now they're denying the actual science behind it. they have swung so far right, and my question after all of this, after that interview which was incendiary and was very much a line in the sand for the gop -- >> it's history making. >> -- when will the republican party admit they have a problem? because every time something like this happens, there is a doubling down, there is a defens

out with an ad targeting people in new york, by the way we don't have the state income tax in texas and also more money in your pocket so you can buy more ammo. which i thought was a pretty interesting appeal-- >> sean. >> sean: go ahead. >> i was born in new york. i was born 20 miles southwestern new york where a crazed gunman shot two, two volunteer firefighters. this is the same guy, sean, that 20-some odd years ago he bludgeoned his mom to death with a hammer and so badly the coroner couldn't recognize her. they sentham to jail and he got out. and go figure, got a gun, three weeks ago, woke up one morning with his house on fire, laid in wait behind some bushes for volunteer firefighters to arrive and the shot two of them dead and rather than sheldon silver the speaker of the house looking in the mirror and saying this is my fault for not making harsher punishment against these criminals, what do they do? they institute a weapons ban. i mean, it's just ridiculous and of all the foolish things they weren't smart enough to exempt their own police officers from it. >> can i speak to
with him on issues like taxes. 90% agree with him, for example, on universal background checks on the purchase of a weapon. it's very different from what happened with george bush when he won a very narrow victory in 2004 and then said he had a mandate and decided he had a mandate to privatize social security, which was deeply unpopular. the great strength of the president here is he knows what he wants to do, he's very focused, and he has the country with him. some of this stuff is going to be tough to get through congress and you may have to fight it in the midterms and beyond, but he's going to make real progress, i think, because of what he believes and because he's got the country with him. >> well, these are kind of fundamental issues for a president, guns and keeping the government going and fighting for his foreign policy team. it's not like he's looked for a fight. let's face it, newtown forced everybody to deal with this. >> newtown has changed everything. >> i don't think he's looking for a fight. i think he's found one. >> i agree with you. i think since the electio
to join in. on the stimulus package, you know why there were so many tax cuts in the stimulus package? he was hoping to get republicans to come in on that. because guess what? republicans are for tax breaks. we all know what the president's space was unprecedented, a set of republican leaders who said from the outset, our number one task is to make sure this president fails. no president had seen that. and understand, we were on the cusp of something almost like the great depression here and republicans stood fast and said our number one priority -- mitch mcconnell, to see the president fail. that's unprecedented. >> i agree that there is some lack of precedent on that. but there is also lack of precedent on the amount of big-ticket items that were passed with nothing but democrat loads. >> listen. >> and it has not helped. i think it's fermented a -- you know, an environment that's become increasingly uncivil. >> all right. we have exhausted this subject. i want to move on quickly and i don't have a lot of time. i want to talk about you said the president seemed antagonistic and other p
and revamping the tax code. very american speech. i thought it actually was quite inclusive. meant for most americans. >> bret: republicans noted there wasn't a lot of talk how to deal with something they talk a lot about, the deficit and debt and concerned about the years ahead and how it paid for things. take a listen. >> we reject that america must comparing for those who built the country and the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, they don't sap the initiative, they strengthen us. [ applause ] thaw do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> that is the only time he talk about the deficits. >> i had that same thought. reminded me of something that lincoln said or made a book review or critique. people who like this sort of thing will find this is the sort of thing they like. and for those who already agree with the president perspective, on those issues and on many others there was lots to like. it wasn't a speech that reached out to the other side. more a speech that challenged the
. unemployment is lower. 3% difference. income tax, there is none in texas. 9% in california. no corporate tax. so there is job creation. so california lost over the past ten-year a couple million people. half a million people moved in to texas. >> gretchen: one of the big arguments has been that california will continue to not be able to pay its bills because people like that who are employable are leaving so they're losing their tax base. >> they pay their politicians so much, some towns have gone bankrupt. san bernardino. we sent kennedy, a special correspondent from my show to the mayor's office looking for answers. >> i walked down an empty hallway looking for the mayor, looking for anyone. i felt like i was in a horror movie. it was creepy. i found an empty conference room and decided i would take over as mayor. show of hands? all right. not all at once. busy day. we have a lot of problems. lot of people out of work. lot of businesses with shuttered doors. i don't hear any answers from any of you! >> steve: the lights are on, but nobody is home. >> they were in there. she couldn't find t
and the phones and gets his way on that and gets his way on the tax bill that kennedy couldn't get through. my question is when you look at the great skills and the talents that lbj had dealing with the senate and congress, do they really apply in the era of hyper polarization that we live in? the republican leader. does mitch mcconnell respond with the same? >> i think you have to remember that there was terrific polarization in the 1960s. the democratic party was in control of tourn democrats who were against the kifl rights bills and controlled the mitties. the house were mostly in control of people against the bills. they were also against most of the great society programs. he had to find republicans that would support him. what the hell is say presidency for is a quote of johnson when early 64 before his first state of the union after kennedy died, his entire staff said don't go for the civil rights bill. it's a presidential election year and hang on to the presidency and we will do it after that. he said what the hell is say presidency for? we are going for it. he went for it and got it

the lowest corporate tax rates since the 1970s and looking at deep cuts that are going to hurt these people. so i hope, and i think there is some sign today that the president is talking about really holding the line on that. >> well, i think the president is going to hold the line. he was pretty strong about that today. gop pollster frank luntz was asked on fox news the republican failure to win over americans with their rhetoric on spending. here it is. >> do you believe the error is smaller government, the adjustment should be more effective and efficient government. why are those words so important? >> because the american people don't care what the size of government. they do care what types of services government gives. and quite frankly, how much government takes. >> and also, whether the government pays its bills or not. but e.j., this is all in the arena of the republican mantra that they want to make sure that they drive home to the american people that government doesn't do anything well, that we must privatize almost everything we can get our hands on. isn't that really what it'

, to balance any tax revenues? >> well, i think we need to look at long-term and that's where the house has passed the budget. we're still waiting on the senate to pass the budget after 1,350 days. you need to have that on the table from the senate side. you obviously need to have that from the president who has not told us when he is going to send his budget over. is he going to miss those dead looirchz. we have a lot of work to do, but it deals with spending. that's the problem. i want to avoid a downgrade, and i do agree with the vice president of the united states that says we're not going to default on our debt. that's clear. we have enough payments coming in to the treasury to pay our interest on the debt, and that's how we avoid the default, but we've got to focus on the spending problem, and that's what most of my constituents are talking about. >> i want to ask you about the gun control debate because the president is going to be rolling out a new proposal tomorrow, and he is prepared to use executive action in some ways if congress won't act. harry reid has said that until the hou

their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun-free zones for ours. >> that ad launched today. the white house called it repugnant and cow ardly. highlighting nra intransigence is part of the strategy. momentum for change may be starting to fade. 56% now favor an assault weapons ban compared to 62% immediately after newtown. 58% support a ban on extended magazines. last month, that was 62%. however, expanded background checks remains popular with 87% supporting checks on gun show purchases. we'll have more on the politics shortly. first, the personal two takes on what happened at the white house today. lexi holler, the uncle of noah posner joins us along with colin goddard, slot four times at virginia tech. >>> i was wondering what your reaction was to what you heard? >> well, based on what we heard before, the announcement when the families met with the president and the vice president and during the announcement itself, i was satisfied and pleased to see that the administration is treating this
into a tax exempt group called organizing for action. that's the new name for what was once called obama for america. the goal according to politico is to play an active role in support of the president's agenda. >> the president has the most exciting campaign apparatus ever built. it's time to turn that loose. it's time to turn that loose for something more than just an election, right? if the nra has got a list then obama for america has a bigger list. >> i'm not sure what they think of that at the dnc, that all of a sudden this entity is going to have perpetual life. >> let's be really clear about this. the dnc is always an extension of the president who is in office. what's interesting about this, and i talked to people who are engaged in this today, and it's still very much in definition. but this is where the answer to your question comes. because if ofa becomes a very effective force as regards legislation, then you begin to define the democratic party based on a legislative agenda which as the mayor points out extends from this president but, again, there's one challenge in this.
